No 'Alerts'!

Kendrew profile image
71 Replies

When anyone does a 'like' or responds to something I've posted, I usually get a little yellow number telling me how many responses I've had, appearing on 'Alerts' at top of my phone. This is no longer happening and although I've reported it, an email came back saying they couldn't replicate problem and all seemed fine.

I've activated all the troubleshooting advice to no avail.

Anyone having same problem or got any advice for me please?

Yes - sort of registered it earlier but since I don't use them I didn't bother thinking about it. All they tell me really is that someone liked a post/reply I'd written and all 50-odd that show can be that alone!!! I THINK it is intermittent though - sure I saw an orange blob with 42 in it earlier.

But no - not just you!!! And just looked - they are notching up, just the number is missing and the list won't scroll. But now the orange no has appeared ...

Thanks.It's quite frustrating to have to keep opening whole thing up to see if I've had any messages, but in the grand scheme of things, I suppose it's not that important really. Thanks again.

yes same as PMR. have notified them and same with notifications they said it was going to spam and told me to put another email from them in contacts but still no fix. Think their IT is a mess.

same here doh!! what a site. must be a problem like knocking over dominos. once something goes out then probably difficult to work back. probably wished they hadn't done the last lot of "improvements"

Oh!.... yes, there was a flash of an orange number 2 and then it disappeared!That didn't sound right did it!!!

😂 Haha!Oh!.... there again!!

I’ve been out, but now back will have a whinge…..

Update, just done…

Still no 'Alerts' registering. I just clicked on it to check and saw your communication. Normally it would have lit up with a number 1 to signify one new response to the post. Hopefully it'll get sorted. Thanks.

Hi,

response from HU-

“I have made the tech team aware of the issue and they will be working on a fix as soon as possible. Please note, we may take a little longer than usual to resolve this as a number of our tech staff are on vacation.”

Kendrew in reply to DorsetLady

I got same message. Seems the standard response but as long as they're trying to fix it.... fingers crossed 🤞

Yes, I have not gotten alerts for several days. This morning I suddenly had numerous alerts that covered several days past.

Something funny is going on. It wouldn't open to let me see what Cycli had said to me for ages last night. I couldn't get in at all this morning.

cycli profile image
cycli in reply to Seacat30

probably because of what I said👿 I think they haven't sorted it yet.

I don’t think I have ever had a little yellow number all the time I have been on this forum. It sounds quite useful.

cycli in reply to piglette

mines orange and it has been haywire today.

No orange, no yellow numbers, why have I been left out?

It is happening here too but I'm across the pond --- it may take awhile for me to be notified but it used to seem more instantaneous.

Mine too. But if I click on alerts, there is stuff there.

Kendrew profile image
Kendrew in reply to Sharitone

Yes. Responses on mine too. I'm just not receiving any notification to let me know.

Yes, I'm still not getting the little orange circle. I liked that sunny little guy!

I think they are having problems generally, I couldn't get on at all yesterday morning for a while, but that did improve later. The little notification number, usually yellow for me, has been very erratic for quite a while and letting them know seems to solve very little.

Seems to be okay this morning (Thurs 11th)..😉

No problem logging in this morning, emails for replies etc working but still no little yellow numbers on "alerts".

.....and even though I've now read them, the '10' won't go!!😂

Kendrew profile image
Kendrew in reply to DorsetLady

Literally have just had an alert showing 10 unread messages. It's so erratic!

DorsetLady profile image
DorsetLadyPMRGCAuk volunteer in reply to Kendrew

..and therefore much more frustrating …🙀

Yes, for the last week I’ve noticed it and thought is was likely something I’d done in error while trying to update my profile (which is more complicated than a tax return).It’s annoying if you’re concerned for somebody and have can’t see easily if they have responded.

PMRproAmbassador in reply to stillsdisease

If you follow a thread (aka Save) and order email notifications you will get proper notifications for anything on that thread including that person's replies. If you are worried about someone you can also follow them - and I think that also tells you about their posts though not sure how

DorsetLady profile image
DorsetLadyPMRGCAuk volunteer in reply to PMRpro

You get email notifications provided you have selected that option

It’s only when you write a New Post - not ALL Your Replies……

PMRpro profile image
PMRproAmbassador in reply to MrsNails

Fair enough! They miss a lot then! Most of my pearls are as replies :)

But stillsdisease wants to know about someone's replies ...

Is that a side effect of meds 😉

No, I think it was marriage…,😂🤣-or that’s what late hubby would have said.

I did email the helpline a few times to explain a few additional problems just in case it helped them understand what the issue was. You always do a great job and your hard work is always much appreciated. ❤

Kept indoors today - apart from a quick nip into town & that’s an Air Conditioned Mall! Saving myself for tomorrow - just set up a baby changing area in the boot as it’s too hot to dress Theo before we leave for the Christening! His 2nd Outfit is a white cotton shirt & shorts but he has the most gorgeous ivory satin romper suit for the Ceremony - think Royal Family 😉

I’m sure there will be many tales to tell! 😂

Depends on the church I suppose. My great niece was christened in Dundee cathedral a couple of weeks ago and the priest started her sermon commenting on how delightfully cool the building was - instead of the usual moans about how COLD the place was ...
